such a liability for the democrats that harry reid and other democrats throw him overboard, then chris cities -- chris cities gets to name replacement. the other part of this is as you point out that if the fbi can go up the food chain because the part that they are looking at is influence pedaling, allegations of corruption that perhaps senator menendez his official office to work with his donor to pass out some business favors, perhaps, to this dozier. these are the allegations, this is what is out there. if they cannot just get to menendez but perhaps to a broader net of even bigger fish like the clintons who have been known to work with this donor, then i think the democrats have a wider scandal on their hands. >> bill: i think there is scandal here. >> guilt by association. >> bill: at this point, correct, there is no hard evans to show anything. as dr. crowley pointed out. >> that's what i have to call her. >> bill: you don't get a warrant or don't have fbi resources on a fishing expedition. >> innocent until proven guilty. wouldn't talk to the fbi and men then des who won by 19 points.

you for being here. [applause] speaker boehner, leader harry reid, leader nancy pelosi, assistant leader james clyburn, members of the rosa parks family, distinguished guests and friends. we gather here today to remember a woman whose legacy has already outlived her time among us. and we honor her not only with our presence, but with this permanent reminder of the cause she embody. we honor her not only with other great people, but with such great memory. rosa parks may not have led us to victory against the british, she didn't give a single speech in the senate or the house, or blast off into space or point the way west. yet with quiet courage and unshakable resolve, she did something so important on a cold alabaman evening in 1955. she helped unite the spirit of america. which the founders so perfectly and courageously expressed in the opening words of the declaration of independence. with a form of government they still really only outlined in our constitution. for some, she served as an inspiration. as president bush put it, she set in motion a movement for freedom and equalit

position. he's being followed -- you see eric cantor, harry reid, the senate majority leader. they're part of the official escort committee who are there to bring the president in to the chamber. it will take him a while to get through this crowd. he's shaking hands with everyone he sees there. as i said, a lot of these people have been waiting a long time just to get a shot with the president on this important historic night. band-aided by the constitution that he should provide a report to the nation about the state of the union. the president will tell us what he thinks the state of the union is momentarily. jake, you and i have seen a lot of these state of the union addresses. this is an important one because it kicks off the president's second term. >> that's right. he will set the table for his second term. he hopes he will, anyway. i do find it so interesting that there are members of the house and senate that literally sit in those seats in the house chamber for hours upon hours just for this moment, so they can shake the president's hand. it's often the same members of congress, c

that a cabinet secretary needed 60 votes and both of those bush nominees facing harry reid and democrats and environmental agency head. both had to meet 60 vote threshold. now it has happened to hagel. the third time in ten years. so it's not unprecedented. my question to you, why rush it? >> because the department of defense is responsible for our military. we are currently in conflict right now. i think this is something that has to deal with national security. you really need to get serious and get to work here. we can't be talking about things that are not relevant. they are asking for information about benghazi and chuck hagel had nothing to do with benghazi. if you wanted questions about that you need to talk on other people. >> heather: they got one of those questions answered, that is whether or not president obama himself personally called libyan officials on the night of september 11th but the respect on hagel to get a simple answer which we now know the answer was no. brad? >> you are absolutely right. we had some leverage over the white house and hagel was used at that levera

harry reid, eric cantor there. and members of congress. these are coveted seats. just saying before the president was introduced here, there has been all this advanced notice that the president will be sort of keeping with his confident, even arguably aggressive tone that he has taken since his reelection. the quote that stood out for me from politico this week, it was assigned to a person close to the drafting of the speech. >> right. >> said the president's approach to the republican party in this speech would be borrowed from the 2500-year-old chinese book philosophy "the art of war." and the quote was "build your opponent a golden bridge to retreat across." . >> i like the quote. and i think that would be probably a good strategy for the president. i mean, i would hope that we don't see a lot of partisan bickering, but i hope he is aggressive in terms of the proposals that he is going to lay out. this being his last term, most people say 18 months and then you start looking lame duck. so very important speech as to what his presidency and his legacy is going to mean. and i think
